2020 Fleet 'White Label' Leongatha Pinot Noir
ELEGANT AND PURE PINOT NOIR
The 2020 ‘White Label’ Leongatha Pinot Noir jumps straight out of the glass, it has vibrancy and typicity in spades. Fresh cherries, wild strawberries and that classic earthy/autumnal undercurrent that Gippsland is renowned for!
Drink now or cellar for 5-10 years.
‘Cherry red colour, vibrant lifted aromatics on the nose, wild strawberries spiced damson plums, savoury/earthiness and brown spice begin unfurling in the glass, the palate is fine, with slippery pinot tannins carrying the fruit to a long finish.’
